ἰοὺ ἰού, a cry of despair. In O. T. 1071, O. T. 1182, Tr. 1143, and Ph. 38, “ἰοὺ ἰού” stands within the trimeter.

βραδεῖαν, predicate. ‘Either Teucer was too late in sending me, or I have been too long upon the road,’—though he had come, of course, with all speed. ἡμᾶςπέμπων ὁδόν: for the cogn. acc., cp. El. 1163πεμφθεὶς κελεύθους”. With “πέμπω”, the second acc. usu. denotes the place to which ( O. T. 761ἀγρούς σφε πέμψαι”).— ᾿φάνην: cp. 308᾿θώϋξεν”: 557 “᾿τράφης”.
